What is OpenPNM?

OpenPNM is open-source framework for conducting pore network modeling
simulations of multiphase transport in porous materials. It includes
modules for generating various common network topologies, pore and
throat geometry models, pore scale physics models, and fluid property
estimation. It also contains a large set of algorithms for running various
simulations such drainage curves, gas diffusion, permeability, and more.

OpenPNM is written in Python making extensive use of Scipy. Python is a very
flexible object oriented programming language that will be familiar to those
with experience using Matlab. OpenPNM takes advantages of the OOP paradigm
to structure the framework. Our goal is to help other scientists and engineers
harness the power and intuitive pore network modeling approach, so if you are
interested in this package, please contact us through Github, or email one of
the developer directly.


.. code-block:: python

pip install openpnm
